Got News ^ | 7/7/14 | Charles C. Johnson

Posted on 07/07/2014 3:14:40 PM PDT by gwgn02

I follow this guy on Twitter. He will be putting out a story on the border too. He is sniffing out corruption and taunting the targets before his story comes out. They are threatening to sue him and he is laughing in their faces. LOL!!!

He did say he would work hard against TEA Party candidates across the country, and now we see it in action.

Although he certainly lacks the morals, I doubt he's got the brains. He's probably just the bag man.

**************************************************************************

Remember folks, we need to take a “rifle shot” approach toward ridding the Republican Party of the most despicable RINOs. For this cycle’s Senate races, the Kentucky race with the deeply despicable Mitch McConnell and the Mississippi race with the equally despicable RINO puppet Thad Cochran (should he survive the primary challenges) are deserving of being purged.

It’s not enough to simply not vote for them, to be sure of defeating them we sure active vote for and support their DemocRAT opponents. In the long run this will be the best way of advancing conservative interests by sending the remaining RINOs an unmistakable message.

Does anyone know if Charles C. Johnson has any credibility?
I have asked a couple of times and place and still do not know what to do with his blockbusters.

Yes. One of the freepers did research on him and he definitely has credibility.

Cool - Republicans tapping to Democrat slime will get press coverage... Then we can ask the obvious: why doesn’t the press cover these groups when they’re working for Democrats?

I’ve been following him too....he’s a bit of a loose cannon, but an errant shot here and there is of no consequence if he often hits the target.

What “conservative party?”. The GOP isn’t conservative, and it is as corrupt as the Democrats we’re finding out.

I was somewhat suspicious of this Charles C Johnson guy so did some research on my own.... he isn’t a newcomer to conservative politics and we may have reason to be guardedly optimistic:

Who is Charles C. Johnson?

1.He has written a book, “Why Coolidge Matters” and has been on the Mark Levin Show discussing it.

2.from Publisher’s Weekly:

“Charles C. Johnson is an independent writer. His work has appeared in such publications as The Wall Street Journal, The L.A. Times, City Journal, The New Criterion, Reason, Tablet Magazine, and The Claremont Review of Books.

He has been the recipient of both the Robert L. Bartley Fellowship and Eric Breindel Award at the WSJ, the Robert Novak Award at the Philips Foundation, and the Publius Fellowship at the Claremont Institute.

He lives in the San Gabriel Valley with his fiancée and is presently writing a political biography of Barack Obama.”

3. This link is to a site showing a pic of him with Megyn Kelly (he is a little bit weird looking):

http://www.gofundme.com/charlescjohnsonresearch

4. He has written for The Wall Street Journal, The New York Post, The Los Angeles Times, The New Criterion, The American Spectator, The Claremont Review of Books, City Journal, Reason.com, National Review Online, Tablet Magazine, The Weekly Standard, Powerline, and The New York Sun.

5. His work has been featured on Real Clear Politics, the Drudge Report, Hotair.com, The Blaze, Breitbart.com, Rush Limbaugh’s Show, and the Wall Street Journal’s Best of the Web.

6.He has been on Fox News with Megyn Kelly, Sean Hannity, and Lou Dobbs and numerous radio programs, including Larry Elder, John Batchelor, Rusty Humphries, Dennis Prager, Larry Elder, Mark Levin, and Larry Kudlow.

7. To date, he is the only person to have won both the Robert F. Bartley Fellowship and the Eric Breindel Collegiate Journalism Award, which came with a $10,000 prize and an internship at the Wall Street Journal after he exposed a pro-Hezbollah, pro-Hamas professor at his alma mater.

8.He has also won the Robert F. Novak Special Alumni Fellowship from the Phillips Foundation and the Publius Fellowship at the Claremont Institute.

9.Charles has worked for Alan M. Dershowitz at Harvard Law School, Seth Lipsky at the New York Sun, Carl Schramm at the Kauffman Foundation, and Charles Kesler at the Claremont Review of Books. Fluent in French and proficient in Spanish, Charles lives in Los Angeles.

10. In the excerpt below The Cochran campaign describes him as a blogger “trying to start his own blog”:

“(Fielder) started demanding all this money from the campaign, so this blogger showed up last week with Tea Party Express and admits he paid him for the story,” said Russell.

“He’s so much like Clayton Kelly. He’s trying to start his own blog and he’s making loud accusations trying to defame us.Frankly, if I were these two gentlemen, I’d be talking to my attorney because we’re talking to ours,” said Russell.

Johnson didn’t answer his phone and hasn’t responded to an email request, but he earlier tweeted:
“You establishment hacks do know that I’ve been threatened with lawsuits, death threats before, right? I planned on this. #mssen”

What do you mean “?”, click on the link in post 20, that’s what my comment is directed at, it’s a link to give money to Alison Grimes, the abortion-loving democrat running for Senate in Kentucky. That fellow Paladin2 actually believes conservatives should fund her! WTF?!

“...A victory for Chris McDaniel is a loss for the reputation of this state for race, for race relationships between blacks and whites and other ethnic groups.

Mississippi can’t afford Chris McDaniel.

We cannot afford the price of inexperienced, untested, disconnected leadership.

Billions are at stake.

On June the 24th go out and vote for Senator Thad Cochran.

This ad was paid for by political action committee All Citizens for Mississippi.”

This is the only part of this political advert that is correct, “Billions are at stake.” Now more than ever, right Mitch McConnell? This is definitely getting interesting. I wonder who they will get to take the fall for this?

From me, they've received a few very polite choice words, like BIG, BIG, BIG mistake - acting like Dems.

"We must cut red tape and allow businesses to grow and create new jobs. As Secretary of State, I worked with both parties to create a one-stop shop for Kentucky businesses to interact with multiple state agencies through one point of contact, reducing tape and making it easier for business to grow and create more jobs. There are currently 854 federal regulations affecting small businesses.[32] We must reduce this regulatory burden. Our federal government shouldn’t prevent small businesses from succeeding and creating jobs in Kentucky.

We must target burdensome federal regulation of Kentucky’s energy sector, allowing our state to create new middle-class jobs across the state. Kentucky is leading the way in domestic energy development and the industry holds tremendous potential to grow Kentucky’s economy, creating middle-class jobs across the state, but the federal government stands in the way. I will fight to reduce this regulatory burden on Kentucky’s energy industry.

We must encourage manufacturing to return to Kentucky. I’m encouraged that companies like General Electric are opening manufacturing plants across Kentucky, but we must do more to create these new investments in our state. We should end tax breaks for companies that move jobs overseas and expand tax credits for companies to invest in research and development and in new machinery and equipment here at home. We should also invest to develop an advanced manufacturing workforce in Kentucky."

Still looking for a cogitative response supporting the re-election of (Ditch) Mitch.
